    Or at least that is what my daughter is telling me I am!! We have had an issue the past few months between her studies and keeping her off the cell phone. Because her grades were down, I took the phone for the summer and she is taking online classes to catch up. I dont think this was too harsh but my 16 year old sure does!![​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think it is great that you care enough to act before it is too late! Tell her is it better to catch up over the summer than get left back a grade with all the 14 year olds! Then she will see what an awesome parent you truly are!

    One thing I've learned since having kids. They all think their parents are the worst, no matter how much they have or how nice they're treated.
    Don't give in.
